    So I am reading the cgroups manpage because I want to learn about... cgroups. It tells me that for CGroups V1, if I want to use specific features, my kernel needs to be configured. Either I missed a section or it isn't there, because I don't see much mention of kernel requirements for CGroups V2.

    So, my question is, is my kernel ready for CGroups, or should I recompile? Should I be able to support both V1 and V2? The manpage says V1 was a heap, so I was thinking I might continue without it... ... ...

    If you have built from source, then you know the relief when nothing interesting comes out of ./configure && make && make install. In fact, the less interesting the output of these commands, the better.

    But occasionally, the source build process is so horrifying that you end up having to modify the configure script or makefile yourself.

    So far I have only been able to do this when I was lucky enough to find some poor, destitute stranger who had pretty much the same problem as me ( most recent I can think of is GNUTLS, where I had to adjust the version requirements for nettle ) and that is a problem -- there must be some way to learn this myself.

    Is this just something that comes with time and experience, or does anyone have a reliable guide or resource for modifying makefiles and configure scripts? I would appreciate advice / discussion: I am tired of "getting lucky" with these!

    This was a good read, I'll give it a try. I really like spiteful humor.

    It's really wild to me how much it reminds me of usenet. Just a sea of... talk. It's really good.

    If you have never built one, you should -- it gives an in depth look at how different parts of linux interact with each other. Some of the methods used are outdated to be sure, but the first system is meant to be minimal, and a good base on which to build. I am lately working on a 'BLFS', and I'm learning even more.

    Now, if I could just nail down networking ... ... ...

    Any LFS experiences?

    I use lynx on my lfs. It's a fun blast from the past in 2018.
